Credit Rating of Indonesia Image
Over the past few years, Indonesia has become one of the most important economies in Southeast Asia competing with states like Singapore and Hong Kong. This has caught the attention of foreign investors, but also of credit rating agencies which have started paying more attention to the Indonesian economy and also started upgrading its ratings.

Among the attributes of the Indonesian economy, resilience, the high inflow of foreign direct investments, the low public debt and the fiscal policies are just a few mentioned by the major credit rating agencies.

Why are credit ratings important for Indonesia?

Credit ratings play two important roles in Indonesia:

-          the first one is related to the evaluation of the country’s economy;
-          the second one outlines the business confidence of foreign investors who open companies here.

Credit ratings have also helped the government with the implementation of policies which attract foreign direct investments (FDI), one of the most important contributors to the economy.
As mentioned above, Indonesia’s credit ratings have followed an ascending pace during the last few years, especially with respect to the outlook offered by the agencies which announce a stable economy for the next period.
